Summary

This project will help widows' sustainable livelihood. Window's empowerment is a must when the question of national economic stability arises. It is required to drive away poverty and establish widow's position at home and in the society. Unfortunately, many widows are the worst sufferer in this prospect, most of them go about begging to support their family. They are not given priority in family decision making for their poor income. Self-income generating activities can tackle this problem.

Challenge

Poverty is the main barrier for sustainable development and conservation. As widows earn a little, they become very much underprivileged. Even their children are considered as burden for their family. They do not get the opportunity to study and get married at an early age. Having various health hazards and immature pregnancy are imminent. To overcome this peculiar situation, there is no alternative of widow's empowerment. So, we should focus on their income generating activities.

Solution

This project will go a long way in enhancing widows sustainability livelihood and financial stability. Majority of widows are not financially buoyant to start this heliciculture business Due to financial constraints. So, by getting support from this project, they will earn more for their families. Thus their poverty will be reduced and they can become empowered.

Long-Term Impact

Snail farming will help the trained widows to continue their livelihood in the long run. If these trained widows can earn money from this business, their poverty will be reduced and they will be treated as valued members in their families and society. Instead of staying idle and becoming sex trafficking because of their situations. They will be earning money. Their children would continue their study and they contribute to economic growth.
